Paramax Retrofits

Challenge
Companies need efficient, compact equipment to operate their facilities effectively. Changes to existing
designs can prove to be costly. With limited space and pricing as major factors, facilities need to bring
in machinery that does not disrupt the current design’s integrity. When existing equipment is obsolete
or in need of upgrading, one of the best solutions for companies is to retrofit new equipment into pre-­
existing spaces.

Solution
Sumitomo manufactures reducers that offer optimized gear tooth geometry. Its Paramax® series
reducer features a 25-­degree pressure angle and compact housing design, which generates more
torque out of a smaller package—whether it is horizontal, vertical or an upright installation. More torque
from a smaller package makes the Paramax reducer an ideal choice for retrofitting older, obsolete
reducers.

Results
The Paramax® series is a heavy-­duty line of reducers that assists in chemical, mining, paper
manufacturing, plastic and rubber, and power generation, saving larger industries from costly changes,
while keeping equipment running smoothly.
